InsureMyTrip Explains: What are "known perils?"
"Known Perils" in travel insurance are explained by Lynne from Customer Care. A known peril is a travel insurance term for a travel risk that can be anticipated or has already happened before you purchase your travel insurance policy. For example, once weather forecasters have predicted that a hurricane will likely move into the area to which you are traveling, it is too late to purchase a travel insurance policy to protect your trip against the effects of that hurricane. However, if you have purchased a travel insurance policy before the hurricane is predicted, you will likely be covered for the effects of the storm. For this reason, among others, we strongly recommend purchasing a travel insurance policy immediately after making your first payment towards your trip.
